  • High Functioning Anxiety? Some philosophical notes of the modern Aria

    www.huffpost.com/entry/high-functioning-anxiety-signs_l_5cd42647e4b09f321bdcc6d0 I ponder why mental health as a topic has become so prominent in our experiential awareness, concern and vocabulary.

  • The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.
